Hello all, 

    Picked this carte up on eBay last week, he was in an auction lot of civilian cartes, all unidentifiable. He his wearing a Brigadier General Star on each shoulder without an sort of shoulder steps. Is this common? 
    Was hoping one of my more knowledgeable and better resourced a Forum friends may be able to identify him from his image. Back marked out of Chicago so I am assuming he is an Illinois Native. 
     Any help forthcoming will be appreciated, and as always thanks to all for any help provided. Keep safe during this coronavirus crisis, hoping in 2021 we all can resume our collecting activities and show schedules, 🙏🏼
 

Tom

Are they stars or oak leaves?  It's hard to tell from the pics posted.

 

Wearing rank without shoulder straps became more common in the field, for obvious reasons ----> making you less of a target.

 

Your photo was taken in 1864-65, based on the tax stamp.

I think stars. And his buttons on his tunic are in the configuration for a general officer if I’m not mistaken. Did majors’s also have their buttons in rows arranged in pairs of 2 with 16 total?

Thank you very much, I will have to do some research on Gen. Hardin. Maybe there are pics of him on the internet to compare to. Now I have a project to keep me busy during this virus crisis. 👍🏼
